Cheese Grits


  • 4 cups water
  • 1 cup quick-cooking grits (we used the 5-minute quick cooking grits)
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese (we used pepper Jack cheese)
  • ½ cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • ¼ cup heavy whipping cream
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground fresh black pepper (we used freshly ground black pepper)
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder


  1. Take a large saucepan out and pour the water in, setting the heat to medium-high. Once the water’s boiling, slowly whisk the grits in, turning the heat down to medium-low afterwards. Let the grits simmer for 5 minutes or until they’re tender. Stir in the cheese and remaining ingredients and serve right away !

The flavors seemed really subtle at first but once we added some additional salt, the flavors popped a lot more ! You can taste the Jack cheese first and foremost but you can taste the Cheddar cheese near the end of the bite. If you’ve never had grits before, this is a delicious way to be introduced to them !
